DOMs of DARK HAVEN is an anthology of 3 stories by by Cherise Sinclair, Sierra Cartwright and Belinda McBride. This takes place in Dark Haven, the BDSM club that is mentioned in several other stories by Cherise Sinclair. Several of the characters are familiar to those who have read her other books, Master of the Mountain & Master of the Abyss. I've reviewed both of the latter books here in my blog and I have to say that I've liked them all.
In Doms of Dark Haven we have Simon Says by Cherise Sinclair. Master Simon is one of Dark Haven's favorite Doms. He's past the point where eager young submissives stir his interest and has pretty much taken to teaching classes on Domination techniques at the club. At least until Rona McGregor walks into the club. Here is a mature, strong and independent woman who fires his imagination and stirs feelings he hasn't had in a long time.
Rona McGregor, her children grown, her divorce decree in hand, she's out to experience life that she feels has pretty much passed her by. Not that she hasn't lived a good life but she feels she's let some things pass her by and she wants to experience it all. She has a list and top on her list of things is to experience a different man every time. No more stuck-in-a-rut relationships for her. No more than one night per man, non-negotiable. Until she meets the overpowering presence of Master Simon. Going to a BDSM club is in her top five things to do but she wasn't expecting to run into anyone like him. He has her panting, screaming is pleasure and wanting to obey his every command and that just won't do. After a night of never before felt pleasure she runs from him. She refuses to be caught in another unsatisfying relationship even though Master Simon sets off so many emotional fires and desires.
Now Simon has to find a way to prove to her that submitting to him is not the end of her freedom but the beginning.
Three women, three Doms. One extraordinary night.
Welcome to Dark Haven, and may all of your darkest wishes come true..

With an empty nest and divorce in hand, Rona decides it’s time to explore the fantasies that nourished her through a long, tedious marriage to a man whose idea of outrageous sex was leaving the lights on. At the top of her fantasy list is touring Dark Haven, the BDSM club, but she isn’t prepared for the effect of a powerful Dom. When Master Simon takes control and introduces her to toys and sensations she’s never felt before, she realizes he could fulfil every fantasy on her list all by himself. But she’s vowed to never get trapped in a relationship again.
One of the most popular Doms in Dark Haven, Master Simon has had his fill of eager, shallow, young subs. Rona is older, intelligent, independent...and sweetly submissive. After an evening of intense pleasure and despite her obvious attraction, she refuses to see him again. He needs a way to change her mind. She’s not the first sub he’s taken on a journey of exploration, but he’s beginning to think she might be the last.

Torin, with his dark Irish good looks and fierce temper, doesn’t want a partner, any partner, and especially not Mira. But assignments are assignments, and he takes his responsibilities seriously. So when the beautifully submissive Mira crawls into his bedroom, a leather belt between her teeth, he calls on all his resolve to send her away.
Unsatisfied, Mira ups the stakes and finds another dom to play with at Dark Haven. Beyond furious, Torin storms into Master Xavier’s club and claims his rights to dominate Mira. For the first time in her life, she’s met her match.
